Google Scholar Profile


Mohammed Mouradi is currently a Professor at Sultan Moulay Slimane University. He holds a Ph.D. in Plant Sciences. His research focuses on the interactions between plants and microorganisms and their responses to abiotic stresses such as drought salinity and nutrients deficiencies: biochemical and molecular approaches. He is currently a reviewer in several scientific and academic peer-reviewed journal. He worked in many projects financed by Egide, Arimnet, PMARS, and Fabatropimed. He published several papers in the field of N2-fixing, alfalfa breeding, seed priming, stress physiology, antioxidant metabolism etc… He supervised and co-directed many master’s and bachelor’s projects during his career at the University.
